Welcome to In the Know! The Counseling Center sends this email newsletter periodically during the academic year to let our partners across campus know about the various psychoeducational and outreach activities we offer. We hope you are well as we settle in to fall semester. Things look different as we now offer telehealth counseling and virtual outreach, but serving students remains our top priority. Please feel free to share with others who may find this information useful.

Perfectionism Workshops

Many students are told that perfectionism is a good thing and necessary for success. However, studies actually show that perfectionistic attitudes can actually interfere with success. The desire to be perfect can both rob you of a sense of personal satisfaction and cause you to fail to achieve as much as people with more realistic expectations. This 3-part series helps students realize when pefectionism is more harmful than good and develop more realistic expectations. For Spring 2021, we’re offering this online workshop twice.

Series one will be offered on Tuesday, February 16, February 23, and March 2 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. To register for series one, please submit this form.

Series two will be offered Tuesday, March 16, March 23, and March 30 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. To register for the second series, please submit this form.

RIO Online
 
 
 
 

These times are not easy. Feeling isolated and lonely is very common, and life is very different than it was before the pandemic. Many people are having strong reactions to these changes. RIO, which is led by Counseling Center clinicians, provides an interactive experience that helps you

-Learn mindfulness skills to identify why you’re feeling the emotions you are and accept them.

-Manage stress, anxiety, and other emotions productively.

-Identify what’s most important to you and prioritize accordingly.

This series is open to all Illinois students—you do not need to be a current client of the Counseling Center. We do strongly encourage you to be available to attend both online sessions. RIO is not considered counseling and is not confidential. We offer courses throughout the semester at different times and days to meet scheduling needs. Please register on our website.
